The stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom which debuted in Australia two years ago is coming to the West Yorkshire Playhouse but directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie who choreographed In The Heights and also has Jekyll and Hyde coming up at the Old Vic. It'll be interesting if he'll be allowed to make changes as the Australian production wasn't well received.

I must say, the WYP seem to be doing alright lately at co-producing musicals, i.e. Sweeney Todd with WNO, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with Music & Lyrics, I'm sure Into The Woods will do great in other Opera North venues as well (just surprised that the Annie UK tour turned out to be a totally different version given it had the same creative team!).
